Math Circle People

The Math Circles community has three vital components: students, parents, and professional mathematicians. Working together, they learn from each other and collectively raise the mathematical consciousness of our society. We encourage parents to get involved and help the organizing committee to better help these young minds in achieving their goals.

ImageMost classes are taught by Dr. Robert Sachs. Dr. Sachs was educated at Harvard (BA, applied math, summa cum laude) and at the Courant Institute at NYU (MS, PhD in Mathematics, advisor: J. Moser). He was an American Mathematical Society Postdoctoral Fellow and a Van Vleck Visiting Instructor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Before coming to George Mason University, he was an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at The Pennsylvania State University, University Park. At George Mason, he served as department chair for eight years and is currently Professor of Mathematics.

Dr. Nancy Levonian is the founding organizer of FMC, she remains active in its direction along with Julie Chung, President
